Why?

Going through a stack of old papers, I found little scribbles of notes all over the pages. I know that I wrote them, but I have absolutely no idea what a lot of them mean. One note said “half and half” Now does that mean that I needed to buy half and half? Did it mean I only believed half of the article? Or what did that mean? I don’t know why I need to make these little cryptic type of notes, anyway.

Paper is cheap and I am not an international spy! I’d like to think I am important, but I ain’t that important that someone would break into my place to go through my papers! AND…. I am not so busy that I can’t write out a full sentence of what I mean or need.

Do you ever write yourself notes that you later can’t decipher? Why do we do this?
